The ISPRS SC Virtual Rooms

 

The ISPRS SC Virtual Rooms is an initiative that hopes to give another good reason to #StayAtHome in this quarantine season for many. It aims to help us enjoy our time at home by creating spaces to still remain connected with our communities. We are navigating a new way of strengthened communication, changing lifestyles, improving work and research practices and being mindful of what truly matters. The ISPRS SC would like to provide a platform where everyone can meet and connect, and we have prepared different virtual rooms for everyone.
